Family Guy Sings! At Carnegie Hall
Independent travel tips for the professional at Leisure
Family Guy Sings was created to support the Writers Guild
of America (WGA), a great new event with all proceeds going to the WGA.
There are very few events in Carnegie Hall that are "wicked
classy", but this one promises to be very special. The shows were held at
Carnegie Hall on Monday, November 24 & Tuesday, November 25, 2008, before a
packed house, including a few too-many 11 years olds . . .

The show Family Guy Sings was great fun, a charity benefit
for the Writers Guild of America. We took Andy, Jen and Ben, their first
experience with haute' couture and Carnegie hall:

||McFarlane's vocal rang was amazing
The real show as all about Seth McFarlane, a talented
vocalist who moved seamlessly between his voices for Stewie, Brian the dog and
Peter Griffin. I could have listened to this for hours. In addition to having
a wicked sense of humor, McFarlane is a skilled pianist and singer who in his
early years trained with Frank Sinatra's vocal coach.
The tiny midget Seth Green was also comic relief, voicing
McFarlane was dress-out well in a suit with a crisp white
short, but the effect was strand with his sneakers which made is pants look
weird, like a creepy old man.
Seth Macfarlane has a lucky life, since he was booked on
Flight 111 on 9/11/2001, the plane that crashed into the North Tower of the
World Trade center! He missed the flight due to being late and having a
hangover . . .
The show highlights were his renditions of the “Freaking
FCC”, and watching the ladies voice the "embarrassing" lines, like when pretty
Mila Kunis was speaking t
a lack of hot dogs . . . .
